(ReliableNews.org) – Controversy continues to rage in Washington DC in the wake of the January 6 riot at the Capitol Complex. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others have found themselves the target of scorn for actions they took to stand up for American voters by raising questions about potential widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Members of a prestigious Princeton University political society voted in March to revoke Cruz’s James Madison Award for Public Service. The College Fix reported on April 6 that a petition prompted the vote by the American Whig-Cliosophic Society to take back the achievement award that Cruz received in 2016.

The petition claimed Cruz’s decision to raise the issue of election fraud on January 6 and his alleged “role in the invasion” of the nation’s capital put him at “severe odds” with his role as a US Senator.
The society voted to approve the motion to strip Cruz of the award by a vote of 37 to 32. However, the society’s board of trustees has the final say in the matter, and they don’t appear to be in any hurry to do so. A search of the society’s website and other related sites failed to reveal any scheduled board meeting.
